Rhydon (Japanese: サイドン Sidon) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Rhyhorn starting at level 42 and evolves into Rhyperior when traded holding a Protector.

Biology

Rhydon using Surf

Rhydon is a large, gray, bipedal Pokémon with features similar to both dinosaurs and rhinoceroses. It has narrow, red eyes and two fangs in its upper jaw. On the tip of its snout is a cream-colored horn, which is smaller on a female than a male. There are several other spikes and projections on its head: on top is spike that curves forward, two triangular points resembling ears on the sides, a wide, wavy crest under each ear, and spiky ridges on each cheek. It has a cream-colored abdomen divided into strips by thin divots. A rocky plate on its chest slightly overlaps its abdomen. There is a row of spikes down its back, and has a long tail with thin, black stripes.

Rhydon is a physically powerful Pokémon. It is recorded as being able to topple buildings with a sweeping blow of its tail, and its horn is able to bore through solid rock and shatter diamonds. Its armor-like hide protects it from heat and physical blows. It is stated to be capable of passing unscathed through streams of magma and withstanding a direct blow from a cannonball without being harmed. However, because of this tough hide, it is insensitive. Despite its well-developed brain, it can be forgetful. Rhydon lives in rough terrain.

Major appearances

A Rhydon appeared in Riddle Me This, under the ownership of Blaine. Blaine used Rhydon against Ash during a Gym battle. It briefly battled Charizard who then refused to battle. While normally tough against Electric attacks, Rhydon was defeated when Pikachu struck Rhydon's horn, which acted like a lightning rod. It reappeared in a flashback in Volcanic Panic.

A Rhydon appeared in The Battle of the Badge, under the ownership of Giovanni. He loaned it to Jessie, James, and Meowth after he put them in charge of the Viridian Gym. It was subsequently used in their battle against Ash, where it was defeated by Pidgeotto and then Pikachu.

A giant Rhydon appeared in Bound For Trouble as a resident of Fairchild Island. Its size was due to there being excessive quantities of food on the island.

A Rhydon appeared in Bibarel Gnaws Best!, under the ownership of the head engineer. It was used in order to drill out rocks for the bridge, but the Drill Pokémon was quickly attacked and defeated by a Bibarel. When Bibarel was cornered, Ash's Pikachu used Iron Tail to finish Rhydon off for good.

A Rhydon appeared in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple!, under the ownership of a Team Rocket Grunt. It was used alongside a Golem to capture Meloetta, but it was stopped from doing so by Ridley and his Golurk. Though the full battle wasn't shown onscreen, Rhydon was apparently defeated by Golurk.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP058 Rhydon Ash's Pokédex Rhydon, the evolved form of Rhyhorn. It is known as the Drill Pokémon. Its large horn gives it formidable attack power.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In Pokémon Origins

Giovanni used a Rhydon in File 3: Giovanni to battle against Red's Charizard and lost.

Blue's Rhydon was briefly seen in File 4: Charizard where it battled Red's Lapras and lost.

In Pokémon Generations

Blue owns a Rhydon, which appeared in The Challenger. He used it during his Indigo League battle against Agatha, where it was seen taking on her Arbok and Gengar. It managed to defeat Arbok, but it is unclear if it won against Gengar as well, for the outcome of that battle was never shown onscreen. Whatever the case, Blue eventually managed to defeat Agatha, allowing him to progress to Lance's room.

Two soldiers' Rhydon appeared in The Redemption, during a fantasy of a story from the past. They were seen petrified after the ultimate weapon was used by AZ to end the great war of Kalos 3,000 years previously.

In Pokémon: Twilight Wings

A Rhydon appeared in Letter.

In the manga

In the Ash & Pikachu manga

Similar to her anime counterpart, Pietra recently caught a Rhydon. It appeared in The Grand Rhydon Plan.

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Gary has a Rhydon, which was sent out with his other Pokémon to battle the giant Slowpoke in Ash vs. Gary.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Blue's Rhydon

Rhydon debuts in Raging Rhydon under the ownership of Koga. It is forced to evolve by its Trainer with a mysterious injection, being the first evolution shown in the manga due to Red's Poliwhirl and Blue's Charmander evolving off-screen at the time.

Later in Tauros the Tyrant, a Team Rocket Grunt used a Rhydon in an attempt to catch Green.

In A Tale of Ninetales, a wild Rhydon attacked two of Blue's fan girls.

A Rhydon appeared in Long Live the Nidoqueen!?, under the ownership of Giovanni. He used its Fissure to trap Red.

In How Do You Do, Sudowoodo?, Gold encounters a wild Rhydon during his race with Whitney. It was hunting down a Sudowoodo, and kidnapped Whitney when she interfered with her Miltank, breaking her arm in the process. Gold tells Sudowoodo to stand up for itself and, with assistance from his billiard cue, helps Sudowoodo defeat the Rhydon with a strong punch to the gut.

In Rock, Paper...Scizor, Blue catches a Rhydon outside the Viridian Gym. He uses him to defeat Chuck in Heckled by Hitmontop, as well as Orm in Don't Doubt Deoxys. Near the end of the FireRed and LeafGreen saga, Blue remarks on a footnote Giovanni included in his handbook: Rhydon possibly possessed a stronger form. This is a reference to Rhydon's new evolved form, Rhyperior, an evolution that succeeded in occurring thanks to Silver's knowledge of Pokémon trading, resulting in the same Rhydon, as Rhyperior, being on hand with him until being returned to Blue later on.

A Rhydon appeared in Deprogramming Porygon-Z, under the ownership of an Ace Trainer.

A Trainer's Rhydon appeared in Clobbering Claydol.

Trivia

Early sketches of Rhydon

Origin

Rhydon's design appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros and some aspects of various dinosaurs, such as ceratopsids.

Name origin

Rhydon may be a combination of rhinoceros and don. Rhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to Rhydon's Ground/Rock type combination. Don, from the Latin dominus, may emphasize Rhydon's being the final evolution of its line (pre-Generation IV), as it is a title akin to lord in several Romance languages; -odon, ultimately from ὀδούς, the ancient Greek word for tooth, is a suffix commonly used in dinosaur names, and so Rhydon's name could be a reference to those prehistoric creatures as well.

Sidon is a combination of 犀 sai (rhinoceros) and don.
